I purchased a 2024 Acura Integra A-Spec with the technology package, the stock tires are Continental garbage. To date the vehicle has 759 miles on the odometer. On top of having to air these up every two weeks due loss of tire pressure activating the sensor. I drive in the city and not that much as is evident by my odometer reading. These tires are dangerous and will likely lead to avoidable tragedies should the manufacturer actually care about the quality and safety of the equipment they pander. Acura is also at fault for not holding their supplier to strict performance and safety metrics. Also, for choosing a poor company to partner with, bringing brand reliability down with it.

Purchased continental tires due to good reviews (which I now believe were clearly fake) and had two blowouts and numerous bubbles all within one year. I finally decided to replace all the four tires with Michelins and have not had a problem since. In addition my daughter purchased a CRV with BRAND NEW Continental tires, less than one year and 20,000 miles later we are having to replace all four due to bubbles in sidewalls. I am waiting for some smart lawyer to start a class action against Continental as I see many people have had the same experience.

Our 2023 Integra came equipped with Continental Tires. With only 1500 miles on them, a blowout occurred driving over a railroad crossing at around 30 mph. There wasn’t anything abnormal about the crossing, just average bumpiness, but the sidewall on one of the tires blew out. Of course, Continental claimed “road hazard,” and refused to do anything about the tires. The attitude and knowledge of the customer representatives we talked to was poor. The tires had low mileage, were not driven on poor roads, and were maintained at the proper pressures. In my opinion, the manufacturing quality is extremely poor, and is matched by the company’s refusal to back their product.

I’ve seen numerous Continental tires with bubbles in the sidewalls on random cars, when I bought a brand new car (I was sad the factory tire was a Continental) and found a bubble in my sidewall after going over a speed bump, I was disappointed but not surprised. Luckily I have a full-size spare and switched it out. The warranty on a new car excludes road hazard as opposed to a set from a retailer. Boo! Cannot wait to replace with Pirelli or Michelin. It’s like the sidewalls are made of paper mâché and completely pathetic. Shame on Continental Tire for selling trash.

I purchased the above tires because Continental tires are highly rated. 65k miles warranty treadwear. Not cheap tires. The warranty fine print is for 72 months. I purchased for the 65k miles. Thinking these would be the last tires I will purchase. I drive very few miles on an annual basis. In 5 years I have driven 23k. The tire tread is down to the wear bar. I am not covered under the warranty. The warranty paperwork does not say conditional on rotating tires every 6 mos or 5000k miles. I rotate tires. Still worn out. The warranty is a scam. Purchase tires with a different brand. Do not believe mileage warranty relates to quality of tire.

I currently lease a 2021 Chevy blazer with 32k miles on it. On February 8th, 2023. I went into Taylor Chevrolet to get a tire repair due to a nail stuck in my front driver's side tire. I was advised that the tire P265/45/R21 could not be fixed, and I needed replace all tires because they were completely worn out. I was totally upset. How could ALL of my tires be worn out evenly at the same time with only 32k miles? I have my tires rotated at the dealership consistently. This led me to believe that I received a defective set of tires.
Called Continental Tire tires at 800-847-3349 and spoke with Customer service. Rep replied there is nothing she could do. Tires last between 20k and 30k. I was not satisfied with paying such a large amount for tires that were defective. I feel like as the consumer the company should stand behind their products. I feel like Continental does not stand by their product, I don’t ever want Continental tires on any vehicle I purchase going forward.

I just had these new tires installed a little over a year. While driving my car along I-5 with my son. The front passenger side tire just burst for an unexplainable reason. I was so shocked and afraid. As I know how dangerous it is to have a front tire burst while driving along a highway. Thus, endangering my life and my son’s as well. And mind the other commuters and drivers. I have some video how the tire look like when I stopped. And to be honest, I’m still wondering how I escaped and avoided a tragic accident. Good thing I was able to maneuver and handle my wheels, as straight as I can until I was able to put it to a complete stop.
Now, to anyone who see the video, can you possibly share with me your thoughts what might have happened or caused why the tire burst. Because I am really confused if this is a manufacturer's defect or installer's mistake? I pray if it is manufacturer's defect, that whatever I experienced will not happen to other consumers who bought the same product/same tire.

Continental Tires causing vibration and only 20,000 miles. These tires also dry rot quick.. Looked up recall and the tire came up with that number. But NTB who sold them to me said that the number didn't match date of manufacturer's. Who is lying? Worst tires. I ever bought. Do not buy these tires.

My 2022 Kia Rio S came with Continental Tires. At under 8,000 miles, one of the tires went flat and could not be repaired. I took it to the dealership (an authorized reseller) and learned that Continental Tires do not stand behind their product. I always buy my new tires at Costco (which warranties their tires for road damage and gives prorated prices on tires that require replacement).
I cannot understand why Continental Tires wouldn't provide coverage for its tires to last at least 8,000 miles. Because there is so much tread on my tires, I only need to replace the one ($166 installed at the Kia dealership -- no discount, no prorating, and no warrant from Continental Tires); otherwise, I would go to Costco for a new pair (or all four). Bottom line: avoid Continental Tires. Costco Tire Center spoiled me.

Do not buy tires from Continental Tire Company. They don’t stand behind their tires. My daughter's tires started dry rotting after two years. The tread separated from the sidewall of the tire. They wouldn’t warranty the tires. This company has had three recalls in the last 4years.
